As of this date I will be divorced. I just got notice from the court that my divorce petition has been accepted by the court and has been entered as a decree, with the date of finalization of January 17th. I don't know whether to be happy or sad. I think I'm a bit of both.
They say one door closes, another opens. I feel as if the door in front of me has a deadbolt on the door, and the key is hidden.
I've also been pondering the meaning of "test". A test is to demonstrate one's ability, one's status, or one's accomplishment in an area. One passes a test and moves on to the next level, as in final exams, or swimming tests. When one has been offered a test, is it inherent that passing assumes a movement to the next level? I don't think it is so wrong to have that assumption.
